Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton are brilliant.

The comedy duo, more commonly known as ‘Frangela,’ have been leaders of the resistance movement since the day Donald Trump was elected. With a comedy album titled “Resist”, a massively popular podcast called “The Final Word,” an enormous Twitter following, and a television show called “Me Time with Frangela” appearing in 44 markets across the United States, these girls are on fire.

In an exclusive interview with Alex Mohajer and The Resist Report, Callier and Shelton (fraternal twin sisters) discuss what its like to be women of color with such a major platform at a time when race and politics have become so divisive, and how comedy can be used as a subversive tool of critiquing the status quo. Tune in to hear their picks for the Democratic 2020 nominee for President, and hear about where they were on Election Night 2016.

Later in the episode, the co-hosts Mohajer, Rance Collins, Thomas McAbee, and Daniel Fusselman are back for another round of hot topics and pick their #ShitholeoftheWeek.

The nominees this week for Shithole of the Week are:

  • Bernie Sanders (nominated by Alex Mohajer).
  • Judge T.S. Elliot, the judge in the Paul Manafort trial (nominated by Thomas Mcabee and Frangela).
  • People who don’t listen to or believe victims (nominated by Rance Collins).
  • Journalist David Sirota for his anti-Democrat hit pieces (nominated by Daniel Fusselman)
